Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul fans were amped enough that Vince Gilligan did a Reddit AMA yesterday.

But then one Redditor asked if Gilligan had ever thought about opening a real Los Pollos Hermanos. It’s worth noting that although all Los Pollos Hermanos scenes were shot at a real Albuquerque restaurant called Twister, the only place the chicken chain currently exists in the real world is through official merch.

Gilligan confirms that our days of not having an IRL Los Pollos Hermanos may soon come to an end. The Breaking Bad creator made every fan’s day when he said:

Believe it or not… there is talk of a Pollos Hermanos becoming a real restaurant. This is not an idea that I generated personally. But it’s one that’s been presented to me, through the good folks at Sony, and the idea came to them from a businessman who has an interest in doing just that.


Speaking for myself, I’d love to see that happen!”

Naturally, Redditors started suggesting necessary items for the real Los Pollos Hermanos, like…

While the contents of the Heisenburger may not be certain, the spot already has a commercial, courtesy of the show.


It’s true that Gus Fring might not be around to manage things anymore. But at least there are free blue pop rocks on all the ice cream, kids!
